Photogs should back off or accept the dangers of the job. When you invade anyone's personal space you put yourself in harms way and the only one responsible for the fallout is you. Something has to change. Just having a camera does not give the paparazzi the right to abuse people and their families. Regardless of the facts, the cameraman was too close for comfort and he deserves an old fashioned smack upside the head.

Are you sure Alec is not a parent of a MHS lacross player. He behaves like one

I did hear about some of the MHS parents shouting and acting like as*es at the MHS lacrosse finals. Asking for coach Radomski to be fired.......or for him to quit. Parents grow up and stop living through your kids, you had your chance to play, let the kids have fun. It's like all of the other town sports in Massapequa now, Massapequa Mustangs, MILL, MCLL. They are kids, stop treating kids like adults and let them have fun playing a kids game. 3 brothers from MHS made it to the NFL and only 1 kid from MHS made it to The Majors in baseball and he never got to play in a official game on the field pitching. So, enough of the personal trainers and all the nonsense, let the kids have fun.

Both were at fault. The photographer crossed the line and Alec took care of it "Massapequa-style". There's a shocker!! Either they should both go to jail for assault or have a few beers and make up.

I wonder how the "Massapequa-style" of sports parenting evolved. It has become almost a culturally accepted way of behaving when you are a sports parent in Massapequa. IT's funny the kids don't seem that bad,especially the lacrosse players, but the parents are shameful! Its a credit to coach Radomski for rising above the fray and focusing on the kids. You are a good man Radomski. Oh and Alex, did you ever play sports in MHS, no question thats where you learned how to resolve conflict

Problem is to many outsiders coming to live here from places like Broolklyn or Queens and seeing we have good programs and nice facilities . They start coaching and get on these league boards and think they know it all, News for all you newbies, we have always had good programs for years, so you and your kids aren't changing much. Get over yourself and respect our programs and our community, because we have been winners here for years and we are getting tired of getting a bad reputation from other towns because our parents and coaches are a bunch of losers who can't sit diwn and shout their big mouths and enjoy watching their kids play a game. Like I said in other posts, parents Stop living through your kids or take it back to the Boros.

I am a sports parent in Massapequa and have also coached Different sports for a few leagues. I do find that their are two different type of coaches. The ones who care about seeing your kid have fun and don't play favorites, or the other type which is all about winning and not caring about teaching the game first and having fun.How many parents have seen a coach put his kid on a travel team or a all star team when they weren't as good as some kid who deserved it? I never did that all of the years I have coached and find it to be a shame and disrespectful. Just because you coach , dosnt give you the right to make your son an Allstar when a better kid should have that spot.These leagues now are all about winning and not about teaching and having fun playing.Theyare all about having travel teams that HAVE to win, or else it is considered a bad year.What are they teaching our children , that you will never lose in life? That they always have to win or else it dosnt matter? Coaches and parents, always remember, they are children playing a kids game.Let them learn and have fun, sit backand enjoy your kids and let them enjoy their lives. Coaches, take it easy on our kids and stop with all the extra practices and living through these kids. If you can't do that, then dont coach or get involved, because no one needs coaches like that.
